(From the publisher):
A lady is known by the company she keeps, thought Hank Janson.
But Tanya Varsak was no lady, and the company she kept was not the kind you'd want to take home to mother. There were the bully boys who hung out at the Iron Curtain legation. They seemed to know Tanya a little too well. There was that gang of thrill-seeking, drug-crazed beatniks. They knew Tanya well too but in a different way. In a short time the beatnik colony becomes another battleground in the Cold War, and Hank finds the lovely body he's enjoyed all along is a deadly weapon in the sinister arsenal of world communism.
